Alex is a young French chef with a fondness for America pushes the limits of the American Dream by converting a Chicago pizza shop into a luxury entertainment service for the super-rich. When he meets an American girl online, and falls in e-love, it's only natural that he comes to America but minutes after he lands, the young lady changes her mind and dumps him at a rundown suburban motel. During a night of despair and cheap whiskey, he meets Ron, a good-natured, overweight Burger junkie who spends most of his waking life in his parents' basement. Ron cheers up Alex with a tour of Chicago—its hot dogs its skyscrapers, its weed, and the bustling life on the street. But later in the week, desperate and alone again, Alex meets a surprisingly complicated girl named Helena that suddenly makes his trip worthwhile. Faced with the prospect of returning home, Alex decides to stay and build his own business in the States—based on a simple premise: offer enough pleasure and you can charge any price. Along with Ron and Helena, Alex partners with Bob, Ron's best friend, a dim witted ex-convict with political aspirations, and Reza, an Iranian entrepreneur who owns a small pizza shop. The business explodes and Alex quickly finds himself something of an underground kingpin, despite being increasingly conflicted between the two sides of his relationship with Helena, his girlfriend and employee. When Bob's greed and jealousy raise the stakes to a dangerous level, Alex is faced with a choice between a better self and his high rolling life.
